Increasingly, school history has become the focus of public interest, although the fault lines of related debates seem to fall along predictably and often polarised political orientations; time and again, these centre around the place and history of the nation. There is a strong case to be made for recognising that the "professional" centre, which can be found between the political polarities, has much to commend it.
